La Cucina

At “Lu Schiau” we not only offer a wide range of traditional dishes, we tell you their stories, too.

We enjoy creating recipes with herbs that are usually considered ‘peasant food,’ but that we appreciate as fresh, sustainable, and truly flavourful.

From our kitchen you will taste simple but delicious dishes that feature many wild vegetables, such as the ‘paparina’, thistles, the ‘lapistre’ and ‘cicoreddhe’ (wild chicory). All the vegetables we use in our recipes are organic and produced in our own gardens. Our pastas are always homemade: sagne, ciciari e tria, and orecchiette are the stars of our first courses. Your food is accompanied by good, home-baked bread baked in our woodfire oven. The olive oil we serve and the wine you drink are all products of our farm, as are the dried herbs that flavour our dishes, the fruit jams for your morning toast and the liqueurs you savour after a meal. It doesn’t end at the table, either—we even produce our own natural cosmetic products, such as oils, soaps, and creams.

We ensure that all electricity and hot water used on our property is self-produced by photovoltaic panels and solar panels, guaranteeing that your stay with us is entirely sustainable.
